From the furniture store I've been banned - did the saleslady misunderstand? Claimed malicious intent but that's not what I meant when I asked, "Can I get one nightstand?"

Like the character in the limerick, I used to make the occasional faux pas like this, having grown up pretty sheltered and naive! Thank you for the congrats, Sam.

Hi John, shows us how people always try to find a sexual connotation in words or phrases and the person saying them is oblivious off what he or she said but it can be misconstrued I had to laugh though because it is a very clever limerick! Deserves a win! I had a fender bender (many years ago) and I went into a panel beaters business to explain that the back side (of my car) I meant was damaged and could they please give me a quote. They couldn't stop laughing! Hugs and blessings Jenn.

Funny story, thanks for sharing Jenny. I grew up quite sheltered from slang and innuendo, and have gotten into a few episodes where the room bursts out laughing because of something I said. This poem was fictional, but representative of how I have unknowingly let slip a double entendre.

Oh those double meanings, - when I am at Home Depot, I'm too embarrassed to ask for a screw ;)

Hilarious, Michelle! I had a Jr High School friend who used to hold a screw in his hand and ask girls, "want a screw?" The sad/funny thing was, I didn't get it. So sheltered!

Thank you Carolyn, glad you enjoyed the silliness. Sometimes I fear the words I meant innocently are taken the wrong way. Hugs ~ John

Wow! I had to read this twice to "get it". One night stand. One night stand. One night stand. I am pretty dim I guess. Funny after this FINALLY kicked in.

Caren, I find that humor is funnier to me if I've had to work at it a little while. Glad you got my quirky humor!

I grew up kind of sheltered, and was guilty on occasion of the unwitting double entendre, lol!
